Abstract

The photo-physics and -chemistry of indoles are known to be highly complex and strongly dependent on their precise molecular structure and environment. Combination of spectroscopic analysis with quantum chemical calculations should be a powerful tool to unravel precise excited state deactivation mechanisms. At the same time, combined studies are seldom and likely far from trivial. In this work we explore the feasibility of combining spectroscopic and quantum-chemical data into one consistent model. The molecule of choice is indole-2-carboxylic acid (ICA) in aqueous media. Excited state dynamics are determined by time-resolved fluorescence experiments, while excited state reaction pathways of ICA–H2O clusters are explored by ab initio calculations.
